Andreia Mitrea is the CEO of Colina Learning Center – a new educational project seeking to change the way people think about learning. As part of the Colina Nouă residential development in Romania, Colina Learning Center is developing a new educational concept in response to the question: “How might we use school to serve the learning of both children AND adults?” As the residential development and school grow, Andreia is leading the development of an innovative “integrated adult-child curriculum.”
Andreia believes that “It doesn’t take a village, it takes a GREAT village to raise a child.” With a background in the corporate sector, Andreia is now an experienced educational entrepreneur. In 2007, she co-founded the Avenor College and Foundation, which has now become one of the best-reputed private schools in Bucharest, Romania. As a leader and manager, Andreia saw her role as a ‘partner’ and a ‘critical friend’ to the educational team, constantly connecting them to our vision, values, and strategic objectives and enabling them to create policies, processes, and standards that created a sustainable, high-quality organization. Andreia is passionate about organizational learning and systemic approaches and has a Master’s in Educational Leadership from the Institute of Education, London.
